Goulash

Not to be confused with the Hungarian dish of paprika-spiced stewed meat and vegetables, this American version of goulash, also referred to as “slumgullion,” is made with ground beef and pasta. The beef is cooked down with plenty of aromatics and spices and combined with tomatoes, pasta, and cheese to create the perfect comfort meal. We added paprika to the dish in a nod to its Hungarian counterpart.

Get the Recipe:Goulash

Macaroni and Cheese

You can’t go wrong with Tyler’s macaroni and cheese. He uses cheddar and Parmesan to play up the classic flavors. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes for a perfect golden crust.

Simple, Perfect Chili

The name says it all: Ree’s chili is a simple, perfect one-pot meal-in-a-hurry.

Get the Recipe:Simple, Perfect Chili

Creamy Skillet Chicken

One humble skillet has four jobs in this easy weeknight meal: it sears, sautes, simmers and steams. The cleanup is so minimal, your dishwasher will be out of work!

Perfect Pot Roast

Chicken Ramen Noodle Casserole

Low maintenance and packed with flavor, this creamy casserole transforms dorm-friendly ramen noodles into a satisfying casserole for a crowd.

Get the Recipe:Chicken Ramen Noodle Dump Dinner

20-Minute Instant Pot Shrimp Scampi Pasta

The genius of this recipe is that all of the ingredients — wine, garlic, shrimp — even the pasta — cook together in one pot. Just make sure to use shrimp that’s still frozen or they will overcook. You don’t have to serve garlic bread with the dish, but there’s nothing better for sopping up all that delicious buttery sauce.

Lobster Macaroni and Cheese

Chicken and Noodles

“Not to be confused with chicken noodle soup,” Ree says, “this recipe is more of a thick chicken stew.” To thicken the sauce, Ree adds a mixture of flour and water that she calls a “cowboy’s roux” — fitting for a hearty meal on the ranch.

Get the Recipe:Chicken and Noodles

Jack’s Brunswick Stew

Trisha likes to use hen in her Brunswick stew. It’s a fattier bird, which produces a rich broth, but it can be hard to find in grocery stores. Not to worry — standard chicken is just as good, she says.

Get the Recipe:Jack’s Brunswick Stew

One-Pot Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese

Add pulled pork to this Cheddar-and-mozzarella mac and cheese; top it with barbecue or hot sauce if you’re feeling bold.

Beef Stew with Root Vegetables

Leftover Baked Potato Soup

Don’t let leftover baked potatoes from last night’s dinner go to waste. Alton halves the potatoes, then scoops out the starchy filling and feeds it through a ricer. The potatoes’ mild flavor blends perfectly with the buttermilk, sour cream and grated Parmesan.

Get the Recipe:Leftover Baked Potato Soup

Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls

Ina starts by making a homemade chicken stock, which she later uses to cook the matzo balls in. Leave the skins on the onion and garlic — it gives the soup its golden hue, and “it all gets strained later,” Ina says.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Sunny recommends twining up the thyme, parsley and sage before submerging them in the chicken broth. It makes it easier to remove the herbs once the broth has taken on their earthy flavors.

Get the Recipe:Sunny’s Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Matzo Ball Soup

To make the matzo balls, Bobby uses seltzer water, egg and schmaltz (rendered chicken fat used for frying). Staying true to character, he steeps roasted jalapenos in his broth for a spicier soup.

Get the Recipe:Throwdown’s Matzo Ball Soup

Chicken Stew

Giada’s stew is quick and easy to prepare since it doesn’t require cooking a whole chicken. Using only chicken breasts cuts down on time and prep work.

Oxtail Stew

This oxtail stew is inspired by the Jamaican version, with tender oxtails and butter beans seasoned with spicy habaneros, ginger and allspice. Time is the key to the comforting brown gravy, which simmers for several hours, intensifying in flavor and rich color. We love it even more the next day, once the beans have had time to break down and the oxtails melt into the gravy even more. Serve with a few dashes of hot sauce for added heat and acidity.

Rachael uses anchovy paste to replicate the robust flavor of Caesar dressing in this mac and cheese. Serve it with shredded escarole or romaine dressed with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil for a balanced dinner.

White Chicken Chili

White chicken chili is a great alternative to its tomato-based counterpart. It has lots of flavor from jalapenos, poblanos and chili powder and get’s a cool, bright finish from sour cream and lime.
